"What I really admire about Jillian is that she gathers money to purchase food from farmers ... to give to their local pantry. That in itself speaks volumes." Letanya Williams
"With the help of Jillian Hishaw we can help support the one in four children that struggle with hunger and over 300,000 people in our local 20 counties struggle to have a meal a month, and by her providing meals, its a tremendous way to feed the community." Doug Groendyke
'Food law is a rapidly developing area of specialized law, and there's a real need for lawyers with food law expertise,' says Susan A. Schnider, the Wiliam H. Enfield Professor of Law at the University of Arkansas School of Law and director of the school's LL.M. Prgram in Agricultural and Food Law. 'There is also a demand from students for classes and programs in this area.'The article notes that the LL.M. program started 30 years ago and, at the time, was an outlier. Of course, we prefer to think of it as "brilliant thought-leader." It goes on to briefly highlight the development of the program, including the addition of the law school's Journal of Food Law & Policy, the nation's first student-edited specialized food law and policy journal, and the program's remarkable outreach efforts: the Indigenous Food and Agriculture Initiative, and the Food Recovery Project.

I launched this firm in 2011 with the single goal of delivering general practice, commercial law services to food businesses.
It is easy for me to point out to my clients the special regulations that apply to their food businesses. I go one step further than that. Over the years I’ve been in practice, I’ve developed an acute awareness for how the constellation of food laws and regulations can affect the ordinary commercial transactions that fill the business day. I add value for my clients by mitigating risks, both regulatory and commercial, and this is what makes me distinctive.
I admire my clients. From farmers to manufacturers, they are sharp and courageous. From shippers to importers, they are innovative and disruptive. It is a privilege to help them make their businesses better.
I am a former Judge Advocate in the United States Marine Corps (separated in 2010 at the rank of Captain) and I’m currently serving as a Major in the New York Air National Guard. I’ve got three kiddos and an indefatigable wife, and you can usually find us eating things across our home range, the Hudson Valley of New York.Mosefund Mangalitsa, the gastro-job resource Good Food Jobs, trade associations like the American Mangalitsa Breeders Association and the American Cheese Society, and the highly-respected non-profit foundation, The Farmer-Veteran Coalition.
I had the extraordinary opportunity to pursue an advanced degree in Agriculture and Food Law at the University of Arkansas School of Law . . . the program gave me a comprehensive understanding of the network of special laws that regulate almost every transaction in our food system.Jason will join us by video-conference from his offices in New York.
